Strategies, Techniques and Tips:
The Brown Sculpin and White Belly Sculpin streamers are good flies to use for the
larger trout.The Olive Matuka and Black Matuka Sculpin Streamers are great flies to
use for the larger trout. Crawl them on the bottom in the deepest water. Brown Sculpin
and White Belly Sculpin are great flies to use at this time of the year.
We still think a good strategy is to fish a tandem Midge rig under a small strike indicator
with the midge lava as the bottom fly and the midge pupa as the top fly. Fish the adult
midge only when you observe trout feeding on the surface.
Little Brown stoneflies are hatching.
March Browns are hatching. Little Black caddis are hatching.
